No More Durty Water is a campaign to help provide safe and sustainable water.
Clean water is a basic human right, specified by the United Nations General Assembly on July 28th 2010. After over a decade of grassroots organising and lobbying, the global water justice movement achieved a significant victory when the UN voted overwhelmingly to affirm the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights.
Every year more children die of diseases caused by contaminated drinking water than of AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Around 1.1 billion people in poor countries do not have access to clean water and sanitation.
No More Durty Water is a fundraising organisation working with existing charities that share our creative and ethical views. By staging concerts, parties and other creative events we can raise awareness and funds. 100% of the money raised goes direct to the charities, all costs for administration, merchandise and equipment is paid for by the Durty Sound System.
Unable to rely those in power to provide clean water, it is up to us to come together, raise awareness and help those who need clean water to survive.

- We are raising money by staging concerts, parties and other creative events and are fully committed to keeping production costs to a minimum.
